CK-4 Oil for your 6.7

So since the 1 Dec 2016 issuance of the API CK-4 and the impending CJ-4 phase out, I've been on the hunt for a replacement full synthetic oil for my 2016 Super Duty CC. For the past week, I've been in discussions with a local distributor, who happens to be a 3rd Party warehouse and distributor for Petro-Canada Lubricants Inc., they are the makers of Duron brands among others. According to the approved list of motor oils which is contained in one of the attachments to this thread, Duron UHP 5W-40 is an approved API CK-4 formula. I've include the technical data sheet, the Ford position statement, and the approved list. Now I realize some of this data has already been shared, but I thought it might help to put this in one post with all the attachments to support the thread.

Now, I've secured a purchasing deal with the distributor to buy 5 gallon pales at a preset price per gallon. At this time, the volume of sales of this particular product doesn't warrant the distributor getting a volume discount, but they have offered it at what I think is a fair price. They have assured me that if in fact we can get the volume up, they will negotiate a price reduction and would start stocking it regularly. Locally, I can get free delivery, yes free delivery with as little as a 10 gallon purchase. I've already setup and account to purchase my first 10 gallons, but plan to pick up the first delivery in person to further negotiate pricing and inventory stock. They have also offered to ship to "friends" for the cost of freight as a separate line item on the invoice.

So, what am I driving at? If there are members within a decent range of Nashville, say within 60 miles, I'd be willing to negotiate further for a larger bulk buy or pass along your information for you to do the negotiations yourself, I'm making nothing on additional volume. I am at a benefit if others by and there volume of sales increase enough for them to negotiate lower per gallon pricing.

Thoughts?

Just wanted to add that this isn't limited to people in a short driving distance to Nashville. In practice, someone else could order the oil, pay for the freight, and the only difference in what we pay locally is the cost of freight.

So does anyone know if they tested Rotella T6 CK-4 formula and it did not pass or have they even tested it yet?

This is going to suck, as that's easily found around my area. Have to do some hunting for another brand that is on the approved list. Valvoline I'm thinking...

this stuff needs to be pulled and brought back to the drawing board. I'm Emailing president Trump on this one. Maybe he will get someone at the EPA with common since to fix this. There is literally NO reliable or affordable solution for running 5w40 synthetic for which most of us do.

some one needs to say " YOUR FIRED " and hire a commoner..
Patriot, SparkyF250 and dsmracing1 like this.

IIRC shell and Ford were discussing Rotella T6.

T5 and T4 both meet the latest standard.

I stocked up on Valvoline PBEX at NAPA on sale for $18/gal. It is the CJ-4, so no problem and I will revisit a year from now. However, PBEX is on the Ford approved list so I may continue with it when the CJ-4 is gone.

The cj4 phase out must be kind of slow around here. I haven't even seen any ck4 oils yet. However when that does happen I'll just keep running the motorcraft oil like I have been, you can't go wrong with that.

10w30 would be fine if I didn't tow long distance. 15W40 just seems like ancient history to me and way too heavy for Vermont winters so 5W40 suits all conditions. There are enough 5W40 oils on the list to be available to everyone. Meanwhile, stock up on CJ-4 which is still good today and will be 2 years from now.

According to Amsoil's website they meet the Ford specs. Not sure if Ford agrees as I have not seen anything from Ford about Amsoil.
